In addition to the stellar performance by the all-star gospel musicians, KiDi was the next surprise performer who stunned everyone with his outstanding performance. Concerning the recent issues with his health that had surfaced, he had been the subject of conversation.

Dancehall artist DSL was one performer who also gave a good account of himself with an exceptional performance that got people talking. The gentleman was absolutely phenomenal. His show was marked by his vocals, self-confidence, and a perfectly chosen song. DSL was honoured in front of the audience as the winner of this year’s ‘Unsung’ category after his performance.
